This three in one car seat from Graco had a total of one thousand one hundred and thirty-two Amazon reviews giving it an average overall rating of four and a half out of five stars.

The critical review found to be the most helpful gave the unit a rating of three out of five stars. The reviewer found that the seat appeared to be ideal out of the box but when they put a three and a half year old child in it they were disappointed and returned the item. The crotch strap on the unit did not allow the seat to adjust as the child grew. The reviewer did believe that the seat would work fine for a younger child.

The most helpful positive review gave the car seat a rating of four out of five stars. The fact that there were only two adjustments on the crotch strap making older kids sit on it which could be uncomfortable was a negative point for the reviewer. Although the fact that the strap and the seat were both padded was a plus although the reviewer was doubtful that it would be comfortable enough to utilize on a long trip. The storage area and cup holder were a plus even though both could not be utilized at once when installed on one side.
